I wasn't quite sure how I wanted the inside tags to look, so after playing around, I ended up with 2 looks. One card has the sentiment and a place to sign. The other holds a Michael's gift card!Thanks for looking and Have a Great Day!

The card base is tempting turquiose. The bottom front is a piece of coredinations (love that stuff) embossed with the swiss dot EF, and lightly sanded. On the top, I used a stamp from SU garden silouette, and stamped in versamark. Then I used embossing powder from Michael's called Marcasite, it's black with sparkle in it! The window was made with the nestie curved rectangle mega dies. The sentiment is from SU Great Friend, I cut it out by hand. The black layer behind it was made with the matchbox die.
I didn't take a pic of the inside..oops! But the girls are from the Breast Cancer Hanna set. I coloured them with copics, and added dp for the dresses.
One of my favorite places to visit is Faith's blog, aka Markie's Mom. She had a fabulous tutorial on making this nestie box/bag. I loved it so much I had to buy the nestie set & give it a try, and as it turned out, it was the perfect holder for my gift!
I used the SU Garden Silouette set again here. The londer branches are stamped in just black, and the smaller ones are done in versamark & EP the same as above. All the butterflies are made with a Martha Stewart punch, and I added tiny gems to the centers.

This is the new School Girl Sophie, isn't she cute! I love the little tilt of her head.
I combined the Friday challenge on the Hanna Stamps forum HSC83 to use dew drops, with the colour challenge CC232 using cocoa, vanilla teal, and the sketch challenge SC241!
I used the #'s and letters from the Teacher Hanna set for the background. Sophie was coloured with copics.
A while back I added a link to my Husbands ebay store. Today I added a link to the Craft Items in the store. You can find it on the right sidebar. He always has different items so keep checking, he may have something you're looking for!
Have a Great Day!

Oh Sophie just looks so relaxed! I love all the bubbles! I will confess, I added pink highlights in the water & under Sophie's chin, which I really don't like, they're too dark! I tried to cover them with extra glitter, but it's still bugging me!
The card base is pink piroutette, with white embossed with the swiss dot EF. The fancy circle was made with the Spellbinders eyelet pendant, and the strip on the bottom is the matching eyelet border die. Don't they look pretty with the pearls!
I stamped Sophie on white, and coloured her in with copics. I used dazzling diamond glitter & crystal effects to pretty it up!

It may not be your typical breast cancer card, but this is what popped into my head so I went with it! If it puts a smile on your face, then my plan worked! lol
Well this may be a bit of a stretch as far as the watercolouring goes, but I did use SU inks & waterbrush to shade in the breasts & sentiment! I used my new SU shimmery white paper, cut them in strips 1.25" each. Then I stamped the image in burnt umber, watercoloured & added bling!
The heart sentiment was stamped onto the shimmery white too, and then I cut it out & popped it up over the pink heart made with the lg SU heart punch.
So what do you think?

Hello, I made this for the 1st entry in round 2 of the Hanna Stamps Guest Designer challenge.
All the entrants were given this new Bubble Bath Sophie to create with!
This is my fun take on an Anniversary or Wedding card!
I stamped Sophie onto white, and I also used the body of St. Patty Beer Riley! I stamped the head of Fins Riley on another piece of white & cut out.
I drew in the tiled floor with a fine tip marker. All the images were coloured with copics.
Sophie's bubbles are covered with dazzling diamonds EP. I also covered Sophies wine glass, Riley's beer and the water on the floor with crystal effects. The main image is popped up, as well as the hearts!
Let me know what you think?
To finish off the last 2 DTGD09 challenges, I inked up a stamp from 'A Flower For All Seasons' for the first time! I love those little images. I combined DTGD09rainy sketch challenge with DTGD09basilefamily - The Happiest Hour, an inspiration piece.
Thanks for stopping by! Stay tuned, I'll be posting my first entry for round #2 of the Hanna Stamps Guest Designer Challenge using Bubblebath Sophie!
